3D-Printed Cocktails Could Be Coming To A Bar Near You
A new robotic process creates a unique drink structure in just 60 seconds
Developed by Benjamin Greimel at the University of Arts and Design Linz in Austria, Print a Drink is a 3D printing method that creates intricate structures inside drinkable liquids.
The process uses a KUKA industrial robot to inject microliter drops of liquid into a cocktail, combining technology with design. The ingredients used in the technique are being kept a secret for now, meaning it’ll be difficult for casual observers to replicate Print a Drink’s method.
The structure inside each cocktail is printed drop by drop, but it only takes about a minute for its construction to be completed.
